    So if I were a federal employee, I would be prepared to take long extended leaves, when the GOP shuts down government, AGAIN. That is how they try to convince people they are saving money. They shut down the federal government.

    But it never works out, because sooner or later, everyone figures out that they are not actually saving anything. They are just doing what they do best, OBSTRUCT.

    THE PARTY OF NO RULES.

    I think that Newt's shutdown of government and the reaction of the public will insure that they aren't dumb enough to do that again.

    But certainly the plan is to allow the Dems to do nothing that will really deal with the economy.

    The GOP's best interests are served right now if Americans suffer.

    They often are, come to think of it, but in this case it's a far less complex stretch to see why that is the case.

    The game plan now is to obstruct anything that might work, to propose the same old supply side solutions that are the problem, and convince enough Americans that the problems of the economy can only be solved when the rich are even richer.

    And if this board is any indicator of the zeitgeist of the American people, they won't have any problem making this gridlock happen while convincing enough the American people that their solutions must be implemented, too.

    It is pretty obvious from what they have said that an improvement in the economy could doom their chances of regaining the white house and getting the "magic negro" out of the oval office. I think you are right. If the economy improves before 2012, they will lose the gains they made in 2010.

    So, Americans will need to learn to suffer a while longer, for the sake of the GOP. They began the economic crisis, and by golly, they want to finish it

    Right. The US will EXPLODE if we don't have government running things as well as they do. :rolleyes:

    Lettuce be reality here. Taxpayers can't afford what the gubamint spends so there has to be budget cuts and deficit reduction. The current crop of Republicans in the House understand this but apparently you don't.

    Stop being the "Party of No Ideas" and suggest actual fixes. The election was tuesday, accept it, get over it and move on like an adult would.

    America needs uniters not dividers.

    You really don't know your recent America history, do you?

    Here, let me give you a hand with that.


    Source

    The HUBRIS and overreach of Newt actually helped the cause of the relection of Wm Clinton.



    Do you get my point now, Lad?
